Accessible innovation, for business owners like you
In an era of disruptive and global changes at a breathtaking pace, companies need to be creative, agile and adaptable to succeed and not be left behind.
Sounds daunting, right?
Innovation doesn't mean you have to cure cancer or launch a rocket into space.
It's about finding a new opportunity for your business. It's about making a new idea reality. It's about bringing a new product to market.
That's why the Calgary Chamber developed a new program called Ignite.
Using a two-pronged approach, Ignite provides Chamber members with both practical outcomes and learning opportunities that support their growth and innovation initiatives.
There are two streams of the program:
- Innovation Primer Workshop Series – for companies looking to uncover adjacent possibilities and new innovative product and service ideas for their companies
- Innovation Accelerator Program – for companies that have a new innovative product or service and want to sprint it to market-ready in 90 days.
Is innovation right for your business? You bet!
Innovation isn't just for tech companies. Here are the kinds of businesses that Ignite could help:
- Retail stores
- Engineering firms
- Real estate
- Mortgage brokerages
- Law firms
- Environmental firms
- Breweries and distilleries
